Drop it like it's hot.

I have been such a slacker!! It is funny what things become important when you are 39 weeks pregnant and for some reason, blogging isn't one of them.  Of course, we had the Grand Opening of our new restaurant on Monday so that kind of trumped me being pregnant.  We had a ribbon cutting with the chamber of commerce as well as a friends & family night that was tons of fun.  We have great supporters in our families as well as community which makes all of the difference in the world.  We opened our very own franchise of Salsarita's!

  It went off without a hitch which is more than I can say for the rest of this week but all in all it is going great.  I am trying to stay clear of the place because being there makes me want to work. (and eat the cookies)  Working requires me to walk around a lot and I have been told that a lot of people walk around to get labor started.  Well folks unlike some people, I AM NOT ready to have this baby yet!  Oops, I know, but I am just not.  I don't feel like I have gotten everything done.  Even though I can't think of anything else to do (like pack my hospital bag) I just don't feel ready.  I realize this is not really up to me though, she will come when she is ready.  Speaking of her coming, she has dropped down like a load of bricks these past few days.  I had this underboob thing going on that was like a fat roll or something and it is now gone.  Also I can breathe while laying on my back which I haven't been able to do in quite sometime!  Check her out!


Ha!  I can't help but laugh!  So really I should probably get ready to have a baby huh?  I feel like I was more ready 4 weeks ago than I am now.  Oh well!  My sister will be coming here to help (thank god) me through labor so hopefully I can hold out until a Friday so she can be here all weekend!! I will have her post for me when this HUGE event finally takes place but for now I am done!  Hope you guys have a great week!


  1. SO EXCITING!! Congratulations on the restaurant!!

    And on the baby! I can't wait to hear all about the birthin, but more importantly, see baby pictures!

  2. Im totally expecting a TEXT when you go into labor. Do NOT leave me out! I cant wait! Neat Belly pic

  3. Congrats on the new biz! I'm glad you're taking it easy though.

    If I lived in Alabama I would totally come support your new restaurant!

  4. I didn't feel ready towards the end either...glad I am not the only one! Congrats on the new business!!!

  5. Yes, please tell Letta to HOLD ON till Friday the 7th-otherwise, I do not know what I'm GONNA DO!

  6. Glad the opening was smooth! Its such an exciting time with EVERYTHING happening at once for y'all! God has a funny way of making things happen on HIS time. I know you don't feel like you are ready, I went thru that with Rutledge. But, you really are!!! In reality, there isn't anything more you can do to prepare you for what's about to happen. Its going to be amazing, fun and scary all at the same time. Just do your best to relax and take each moment as it comes because sometimes, things just happen that you can't plan for. Its during those times that you learn the most;) We hope you all are doing well and can't wait to meet that bebe and see y'all. I told John or Yan, as Rutledge calls him, that we would be giving you a courtesy of at least 2 weeks before we bombard you with a visit;) Love, LOVE!!!
